Support & Donate to Feed our Hungry

Feeding Avery Families, Inc. was established in 2005 and depends solely on donations, gifts, and grants to support its mission. It is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) publicly supported, non-profit organization and contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.

Since our food is purchased at highly discounted rates from MANNA FoodBank or donated by local grocery stores, churches and individuals, our food cost is only 19 cents per individual meal. This means $100 purchases enough food for 525 meals!

Feeding Avery Families needs YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT to continue to address food insecurity. Multiple sponsorship opportunities are available. One-time and recurring donations are greatly appreciated!

Matching Grant

To honor and celebrate the remarkable contributions of Dr. Dick Larson to our community through his tireless work with Feeding Avery Families, AMY Wellness Foundation will be matching grants and donations to Feeding Avery Families up to $10,000! Please join this special opportunity with your donation. CLICK HERE for details about participating.
